Essential Information

We have regular weekly sessions at Fritton on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Times vary accordingly to hours of daylight. Summer open water swimming sessions commence on Tuesday 23/04/19.

All swimmers are required to register with us before their first swim of the 2019 Summer Season (23rd April). Please allow 24 hours between registration and your first swim with us if possible. Registration is free.


All our sessions are monitored and a safety boat is on hand at all times. Our experienced triathlon and swim coaches are always happy to provide any support and guidance needed for you to get the most out of your experience including talking you through the acclimatisation process on your first swim with us. In addition we have male and female changing rooms at the lake side with warm showers.

We do not enforce any rules regarding the use of wetsuits. However we recommend that those who are new to open water swimming or who are not so confident wear one.

Wetsuits come in various forms. Supermarkets and other retail stores have a plentiful supply of wetsuits. However, more often than not, these are designed for windsurfing etc. Whilst they will provide buoyancy and some insulation, they have their drawbacks.

We hire swimming specific wetsuits in various sizes. These are available at each session for a fee of just £10. To hire a wetsuit please email or call 0333 456 0777 with details of date(s) required. To help us select the correct size please let us know your height and weight.
